Summer Programs: Community Outreach
Extension Service provides education and information based on timely research to help Oregonians solve problems and develop skills related to youth, family, community, farm, forest, energy, and marine resources. We carry out our mission by extending the research knowledge base of the University to people who need the information, and providing leadership in applying this knowledge to the problems people have identified. OSU Extension is the "front door to OSU" and the premier provider of non-formal education that meets the needs of Oregonians and contributes significantly to strong individuals, families and communities; a vibrant economy; and sustainable natural resources.
